airliners. well, boeing says it is working with ntsb investigators, looking into monday's fire on a japan airlines 787 at boston's logan airport. the fire involved the batteries in the belly of the plane used to power the aircraft while on the ground. and in a statement, boeing adds, "nothing that we've seen in this case indicates a relationship with any previous 787 power system events." as for the second japan airlines dreamliner that was spewing fuel at logan airport yesterday, it was a pilot from another plane that alerted the control tower that the 787 was losing fuel. and then the control tower notified the unsuspecting j.a.l. pilot. the ntsb says it's not looking into the fuel leak which j.a.l. officials are deeming a mechanical problem. and boston airport officials say there was no leak in the fuel tank, but the plane was venting fuel, which is the aircraft's way to dump excess fuel. but it's not usually seen on the runway. so after four hours, the dreamliner was checked out and cleared to fly. now, the japanese government told cnn they have asked airlines to inspect planes for ba

said, the fire at logan is a unique example and the ntsb is investigating but i think trying to connect this event to other events is pure speculation at this point. we don't have a lot of data. >> have you seen any sign that production might be interrupted, slowed down if, in fact, they have to address the things along the production line? >> none whatsoever. >> because as the journal points out today, you get paid upon delivery and worst-case scenario would begin to avoid cash flow if they were delayed. >> yeah. look, the central bull thesis for boeing shares is about the large amount of cash the company will generate over three or four rates and with the 787 ramping up to very high levels to meet customer demand. if we were to call in to question that cash flow, that weighs against the bull thesis. we don't have any data to suggest that will happen. the planes are still flying and i would say these sorts of teething problems are normal for new planes. we have them on the a-380 and we have to wait and see and we need more data and not calling in to question the long-term fundamentals.
